If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

28-10-2022 Sherbert is a very nervous girl who has come to us from a breeder.  When she sees us approaching she runs to hide in the back of her kennel but once you pick her up and she realises you are going to be kind she starts to relax a little.  Sherbet needs an adult only, calm and gentle home where there is at least one other dog who is very kind and who will allow her to cuddle up to them for comfort and support if she wants to.  This will help raise her confidence with people and she will watch them and start to copy what they do and this will also help her learn new skills like house training and lead walking.  These may take her time to learn as the garden may be as scary as the inside of a home at first but with love, gentle words of encouragement and praise she will gradually start to realise there is nothing to fear and her adopters will see her become the happy little dog we know is waiting to emerge.

20-11-22 UPDATE

Sherbet is a quiet, sweet little girl who is starting to enjoy her home comforts. She is still a bit wary of your intentions but will now walk towards you for an ear rub.
She has started to get used to her harness and lead in the garden and is doing ok. She sleeps all night and is 95% house trained only having a few accidents overnight. She is also ok to be left for short periods and has started to have a little waggy tail when you come home.
She will need a friendly resident dog to help her with her confidence which is getting better over the last few weeks. She  will make somebody a lovely little companion if given the chance.
She really is a very sweet little girl

29-11-22 UPDATE 

Sherbert is slowly coming out of her shell. She is getting more confident and will now approach you for a head rub. She really is a little sweetheart, very gentle and really easy to handle. She’s been clean in house for the last week and is doing ok with her lead training. She is such an easy little girl to look after and will make such a good little companion for whoever is lucky enough to give her a chance.  

Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

 If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.


Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
